Looking for a startup job on AngelList? You’ve come to the right place.
AngelList is a platform that connects startups with investors and talent. Think of it as your tool to find the best jobs at the best startups with the best salaries and employee stock options. You can search over 5 million companies for over 142,000 jobs.
Wow. But searching is only the first step. How do you get that job?
Here are 5 easy steps you can use to get your dream startup job (and to build your long-term wealth):
Want to know how many Employee Stock Options you can get at any startup? Compare startup equity offers and calculate your total compensation with our FREE tool.
AngelList offers to match your profile with over 37,000 startups and tech companies. But how do you know which one of these companies is truly the best? Which will offer you the highest salary? The best employee stock options grant? Or the best career opportunity?
You can begin by comparing the compensation with AngelList’s salary tool. It’s a great one, too, except…Let’s say, it looks like you’ll get a great salary and a great equity offer. Sounds fantastic, right? Not so fast.
You know how risky startups are. What looks good now may not look so good in the future. So how do you predict what will happen in the future? And can you?
You can compare companies with our FREE tool. And you can predict any company’s valuation up to 10 years into the future. This means that you can predict the value of your Employee Stock Options up to 10 years into the future.
Here, try it for yourself.But wait, there’s more great stuff.
We can also predict any company’s exit scenario. So you’ll know if the startup you want to work for is likely to IPO (go public), get acquired, stay forever profitable, or shut down.Yikes!
Don’t you wish you’d know a startup has a high chance of shutting down before you even applied for a job there? We think so too. That’s why we created GrowthAdvisor. We’ll tell you more about how we gather our data later.
Right now, let’s get back to AngelList.
AngelList has a simple three-step process for you to research the best startup jobs:
It’s kind of like dating (and in many ways it is). Only…
When you use AngelList to browse for companies (and to click Yes), you’re using limited data. This data doesn’t include potential future scenarios.
Compare AngelList with GrowthAdvisor.
After all, choosing the wrong job at the wrong company can cost you years of life. And you’ll never get those years back. Ouch.
For example, say you’re looking for a software engineer position. GrowthAdvisor can show you how your salary and equity will change based on your career progression. So you begin as a software engineer, then you get promoted to a senior software engineer, then to the software development manager, and finally to the Chief Technology Officer—CTO.
If you use AngelList alone, you can only hope you’ll get promoted.
If you use AngelList and GrowthAdvisor, you can plan for promotions. And not only that. You can negotiate for promotions. Our data will give you the power to get paid what you deserve. You’ll know the financial performance of any company, at any point during the next 10 years.
We’ll show you how we do it shortly.
Until then, let’s talk about tracking your dream job.
AngelList offers tracking only for startups—to track the best candidates.
And GrowthAdvisor can help you map out your entire career.
You choose. Either track the best jobs yourself by logging into AngelList daily (or however often you want), or let GrowthAdvisor do the job for you
After you’ve narrowed down the list of your favorite jobs, it’s time to pick one and to apply for it. And maybe also apply for a few other runner-ups, just in case.
As mentioned above, AngelList makes this process pretty easy. You click Yes on the job you like. If the startup likes you, they click Yes on your profile. You get an automated email notifying you of their interest. Done.
But if you factor in GrowthAdvisor’s predictions about that startup, you’ll be better off down the road. You can have the whole story of your career written out for you, complete with numbers.
Not to mention, you’ll sleep easy knowing you have minimized your risk and maximized your rewards.
You picked your dream job. There it is. Software Engineer at an Awesome Startup (just as an example). Now what? How do you get it?
We have three great articles full of tips for you (though these companies are not startups any more):
It all boils down to this:
And now, one more bonus step.
